Woodrow's England Bow

Friday 23 May 2014 10:00

Cauley Woodrow featured for England on Thursday night as an Under-20 side kicked off their Toulon Tournament with a comfortable 3-0 win over Qatar.

Fellow debutant Jordan Obita opened the scoring for Gareth Southgate’s side in the first half, with Josh McEachran then seeing an effort cleared off the line as England dominated the play.

And it took less than 15 minutes after the restart for the lead to be doubled, as Brighton & Hove Albion pair Solly March and Jake Forster-Caskey combined, with the latter finishing left-footed.

Woodrow then replaced West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino five minutes later. The Fulham man impressed up top, firstly when his knock-down found Obita who fired wide.

The striker also drew two saves from the Qatar goalkeeper Yousef Hassan late on – first a strike from a tight angle and then a headed effort – before Jordan Cousin’s capitalised on a fluffed clearance in stoppage time to add a third.

The Three Lions are next in action on Monday when they face Brazil.
